Milieux Bauhaus @ Concordia University
From November 5th to 14th 2019
Milieux Insititue for Art, Culture and Technology
A multidisciplinary celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus
What if it was the 1920s, the world is a mess and a new kind of design thinking was all the rage? What if science and technological innovation was seen as key to social progress and culture and technology were hopelessly intertwined? What if we imagined a new kind of school that would deconstruct elitist art and culture as well as military and corporate technocultures, that would draw attention to the centrality of materials and craft, and that would engage directly with the problems and prospects of modernity in all its guises (political, epistemological, aesthetic)? What if we did all this amidst the spectre of fascism, conservative populism, as well as new varieties of socialism and shifting cultural movements?
